Film “When the Day Had No Name” of director Teona Strugar Mitevska scooped the film critic award “Fipresci” at the 23. Auteur Film Festival in Belgrade.

The jury says the Macedonian-Slovenian-Belgian co-production is characterized by great directing, excellent cinematography and compact dramaturgy, which “sucks in the viewer to the very end despite the cyclic structure of the story, where the end is familiar at the film beginning”.

Last week, the actors received the award for debut achievement at the 11. Mostar Film Festival dedicated to film acting.

In November, “When the Day Had No Name” was screened at six festivals worldwide. Regional cinema screenings are scheduled for December and January, followed by distribution in Southeast Asia and China.
